it was important >> in iran, i've been advocating for 30 years good relations between iran and the u.s., iran and the west. the problem is the lack of understanding in both sides. americans they do not understand iran. iranians do not understand america. the second major problem is mistrust. but mistrust is mutual. americans and the western countries, they need to understand why iran cannot trust the west. they have their own legitimate reasons. like americans and western countries, they cannot trust iran, iranians also they should understand why. being here i thought maybe that the most important job i can do to write a book on the nuclear issue as far as the nuclear issue is the issue number one. for the u.s. and the international community to present it the way the prospective and point of view of the iranians for american public opinion and politicians. to facilitate a possible peaceful solution for iranian nuclear crisis. >> there are a number of other questions, and you allude to this, related to trust. what do you say to those americans who argue that iran -- a deal with iran is really
. >> i am from the u.s. naval academy. thanks to all of the panelists for your excellent presentations. what are the lessons to be learned out of what appears to be a consistent record of frustration? we see the breakdown of the geneva agreement and the breakdown of the apartheid agreement and a series of meetings without results. what are the lessons to be learned from this? >> to put things in perspective -- you can think -- one will find going forward -- we were talking about the agreement in istanbul. the whole issue of 20% of iran's call for sanctions, the united states there is a problem that iran to want to negotiate for a position which has changed -- you talk about 20% -- they want sanctions to be lifted with them stopping 20%. the question is they are enriching. we said their right to enrich should be recognized and that would negate all the u.n. sanctions. the nuclear issue stems from u.n. security council issues. within the margins of this issue, there is room to change going forward. i think we may find that it is constrained by the fact that israel is still there. israel
. i think this is when we had to start thinking very seriously about new u.s.-burma bilateral relations. burma had certainly started out on the process of democratization. but how far will it go? how sustainable is it? how genuine is it? those are the questions. i think these questions have not yet been answered in their entirety. how genuine is the process. how sustainable it is. it will depend on all of us. first of all it will depend on the people of burma. the people of burma as represented by those in the legislature would have a lot to do with it. we must also remember that the reform process was initiated by the president. i believe that he is keen on democratic reforms, but how the executive goes about implementing those reforms is what we have to watch. and when we think of democracy, we have to think of the three props of democracy. the three arms of democracy. executive, legislature, and the judiciary. we cannot judge how genuine or how sustainable the democratization of burma is simply by looking at the executive. neither can we do it by looking simply at the legis
. you called for u.s. intervention into syria. he called for military attacks against iran. at the same time, there does not seem to be the appetite in this country for more intervention, especially military intervention, in middle east countries. what do you think the administration should be doing that would address your concerns? >> the short answer is the u.s. with allies, the arab world ought to be much more actively supporting the opposition to bashar al-assad for humanitarian reasons and for reasons of our values. we believe in freedom for people, not the tyranny of bashar al-assad. i think that would be popular thing to do. in the arab world, as they watch what is happening in syria, if they wonder why the rest of the world why we are standing by. theirs is horrible crisis going through the muslim world. -- there is a horrible crisis going on through the muslim world. the government in libya has been very clear against the attacks, apologizing to the u.s. for the libyans who participated in the killing of the americans. why? and they know we were on their side in the uprising ag
-- hostile so you get the claim that someone is acting in revenge against the u.s., for instance, that has to be understood in terms of an understanding of the u.s. where there is no possibility for not taking revenge because the u.s. has to be hostile. the clearest example of this was november of 1979 when a group of a fanatics took over the grand mosque in mecca. the u.s. embassy is burned and there is fires. khomeini made some comments that were broadcast that the u.s. was somehow responsible for this. what possibly would lead people to think that could be the explanation of an attack whabi fanatics text if you assume the u.s. is hostile to islam in general, maybe you can conclude that it was the u.s.. the fundamental fact, the assumption of inherent hostility -- in the case of the region's coming out of the hour but spring is we have to focus to the extent we can on the pragmatic issue of the future. whatever past animosity there is toward the u.s., we want them to think not in terms of how do i get back at the u. s? rather what use can i make of the u.s. to do the things i can't do n

bob dole had been the senate minority leader -- majority leader, i'm sorry, as he was a 1990's during the clinton administration or newt gingrich, i would have been able to work out this deal. whether that is the case or not, certainly, the president has a very strong argument that there is less flexibility in the house republicans now than there was during the gingrich era. >> there has been some criticism of the book. guest: i guess this person did not read the book because you repeatedly have themes. for example, when speaker brainer it is considering whether to except more revenue has -- when speaker boehner is considering whether to accept more revenue as the president has proposed, eric cantor goes to his office. and cantor has the ties with the tea party and boehner lays out his proposal for more revenue and steve stone breeze, who is the chief of staff to eric cantor, who is in touch with the tea partyers to say the least, i ask, how many votes do you think you could get for that additional revenue and the speaker says about 170. and he says to him, "you are crazy." tha
of staff goes swayback when he was an aide to tip o'neill in the 1980's. he was appalled at the speaker will not call the president back and made the point internally at the white house that when ronald reagan called, the phone call was immediately returned. boehner's argument was that he had to put together a congressional deal. he thought it would affect the financial markets. that is his excuse. president said, "why didn't he just call and say, i am working on it." it was the silence that offended the president and the white house staff. boehner did call and said he was backing out. one of the aides who work with them for years said he was spewing coals like a furnace in the oval office that day. the worry was the president was so furious when he was on the phone that he would literally break the phone. scott pelley asked if he was in a phone-breaking mood. the president said he was very angry. host: you write about it lack of deference on the democratic side, too. why do you think that is? guest: a lot has to do with harry reid, who goes to a meeting with the president on a sunday n
and visa issue policy. curtailing the ability of tourists to travel to the u.s. can be one of the most effective counterterrorism tools. as the 9/11 commission report noted, for terrorists, travel documents are as important as weapons. that is a very interesting statement, i think. building on that key inside, we strengthen our outer ring of border security to conduct more rigorous checks, collect biometric data and continuously checked visa holders against the terrorist watch list. we have conducted more checks overseas before passengers even for an airplane or present themselves to an officer at any of our ports of entry, a layered approach the increases our chances of preventing a terrorist from ever coming into america. today we collect more information on foreign travelers through the national targeting center to use complex targeting patterns, allowing agents to find any problems with travel documents that might raise a red flag. programs such as the immigration advisory program and of these the security unit the stations officers and agents overseas are critical components in ou
that will help raise us out of poverty. u.s. sanctions had no affeffect. lately in a the last years of military rule, the u.s. sanctions were blamed for all of that economic illnesses of burma and other ills as well. there is great eagerness for the sanctions to be removed. on my part, i do not think we need to cling onto sanctions on necessarily. i want our people to be responsible for their own destiny and not to depend on too much on external props. we will need external help. we will need the help of our friends abroad and from all over the world. but in the end, we have to build a democracy for ourselves. we won a u.s.-burma -- want u.s.-burma relations to be where burma is accountable for their own destiny. in the fields of education and health and humanitarian aid, our system is in a shamble. many of our people are barely educated. 15% of are the children did not go to school at all. of the rest, hardly 80% make it through high school. our educational system is in dire need of reform. we need practical help. our health system is in the same situation. we need a great help with health and
is at the committee table in the illinois state house or u.s. senate or in various meetings, but he is never the guy in the front of the room deciding or making the hard calls. said in may, he is in the most -- suddenly, he is president of the united states, leader of the free world. how does he do it? how does he make decisions? how does he govern? >> and investigative journalist credit president obama's advisers for many white house policy victories. on c-span2. >> former defense secretary robert gates and former 26 of staff chairman admiral mike mullen predicted dire consequences if automatic cuts are applied to the budget. both talked about the national debt, the need to compromise, and the current condition of service members and their families. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> thanks, john, for your outstanding leadership and for hosting these forums. i also want to thank my co- chair at the coalition and a full partner here who helped to plan these forums, and the co- chair and presenter. pete, it is going to be a great pleasure to have you as a witness today. i have never been able to ask
is perceived as much more serious and varied than it was in the early 1970's. the principal issues in the 1970's weren't even drinking water hazards, but air pollution and rivers that caught on fire because of oil slicks. and if you look at the variety now of environmental threats worldwide, it should generate far, far more demonstration. these demonstrations are occurring in some third-world countries, such as india, for example, and bolivia but not getting much notice. the second outcry is institution building. it did matter that there are old and new environmental groups regardless of how they're named from wildlife to audobon to the newest one, public sit sen -- citizen, green peace, sierra club, of course, those were the watchdogs and had millions of members out there and they are the people who went up to capitol hill and filed groundbreaking lawsuits. we need more of those. the two most recent technologies have no ethical or legal framework on them at the present time. pretty stunning. usually, when there is a new technology, there is a semblance of some kind of regulation. and now we h
but believes the u.s. needs to be more explicit about talking about the threat of terrorism, emanating from islamic radicalism and an element of political correctness in the unwillingness of the obama administration to publicly talk about islam being the cause of terrorism. do you think he would follow through on that? do you think he would move more to the bush second term formulation, which they would abandon the ideas and went for a softer approach? do you think he is just blowing smoke on that? what would be the impact of the u.s. started speaking more about islamic terrorism being a threat? >> q. did a great an entire religion based on the backs of a few is a poor policy. -- to denegrate an entire religion based on the acts of a few is poor policy. the reagan -- arabian peninsula will have a very warped view of the tire religion is a mistake. i think that probably comes from pressure within his party. the right wing of his party to make this a political issue, but i think it is misguided, and is bad policy. >> it is very unfair to norwegian white supremacy. [laughter] we have had a cou
called the s.a.a. re-authorization, this legislation would re-authorize programs that are critical important to our national security. in 2008, f.a.a. has enjoyed a history of strong bipartisan support. now president obama and his administration have made it clear that a clean, long-term extension of f.a.a. is their number one intelligence priority. that's exactly what h.r. 5949 does. recognizing our nation's security cannot and should not wait until an emergency or the 11th hour or rush to re-authorization. the select intelligence and judiciary committees have had hearings on f.a.a.'s re-authorization. they have marked up the bill. they sent it to us months ahead of the expiration deadline. i congratulate both of these committees on their timely and dedicated work for the sake of our own safety. it is with the tools they provide to our intelligence community that we are able to monitor our nation's enemies overseas. without this support the ability to track those nids who aren't american citizens and want to do harm to this country to the state as it was on september 11 of 2001. i
, then the managing editor of "inside u.s. trade" examines the role of the world trade organization. "washington journal" is next. caller: host host: good morning and welcome. we begin with the league to video of mitt romney at a recent fund-raiser. the video first reported by mother jones magazine hit late yesterday afternoon. cable news reported there's more video. a lot of opinions in washington about the video and its impact on campaign 2012. we want to go outside washington and return to the voters this morning. give us your take. and remember, send us your tweets as well. and you can post your comments on facebook. or send us an e-mail. and let me show you the fund- raising video that appeared on mother jones' website yesterday afternoon. >> 47% of the people who vote for the president will vote for the president no matter what. host: governor romney at a fund- raiser earlier this year in private video taken of him. it's all in the papers this morning. here's the baltimore sun -- this i romney was in california and spoke before a hispanic group there and then the video came out. he had a p
this technology with a national park? it is really a legitimate question. when the u.s. dropped atomic bombs in japan in august of 1945 again, 200,000 people were killed. and to have this discussion in the context of honoring a technology that created a bomb, i think, really raises questions about where we are with this country and where we are with the bomb. the splitting of the atom and the use of the split atom to create a atomic bomb bespeaks an intensification of thinking, of us versus them, whoever they are. we then decided that all of our problems in humanity could be solved by technology, that the bomb was then put in place of reason, that the bomb was put in place of diplomacy, that the bomb was in place of talking with each other and settling our differences. the bomb then became the meta phor of how it rules over humanity. we are captives of our own machine. i remember as a young person going to elementary schools doing drills as duck and cover because we believed that the united states was going to be attacked by nuclear weapons. the fear drove entire generations, the fear caused
that myself and include extraneous material on s. 710. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. murphy: i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. murphy: senate 710 will sharply reduce paperwork, regulatory requirements and at the same time it makes crucial information more accessible for states, first responders and the public. when people create hazardous waste we require them to carefully track the movement and disposition. that way we know when a drum full of some hazardous waste is removed from the factory, the same amount winds up where it belongs, at a proper disposal facility and none of it is tossed into a sewer or vacant lot. but for years guaranteeing this actually happened means keeping up with the reporting requirement. multiple copies of paper forms and mailing them out to the e.p.a., state officials as well as keeping a copy of each place of bib. the inefficiency of this system in today's electronic business-to-business world certainly stands out to anyone. in fact, we learned of a case when first responders arri
for iran, was it a victory for the u.s., was it a victory for morsi, who lost or won. i would say a couple of things. first of all, i think whatever benefits iran drew from it and there were certainly some were probably bigger as a result of the campaign to prevent ban ki-moon from going there in the first place. had there not been that much of a campaign ci not recall any other nonmeeting that got so much media attention anywhere. the second point that i is this valuable to make here is that those who are pressing the fact that ban ki-moon went and the fact that he was there, both to his face and privately and in public expressed both on the human rights abuses of iran, as well as other things, i think takes far more courage than the courage it took for those sitting in washington trying to prevent him from going or sitting here and agitating for more military policy. that's what the secretary general should be doing, going there and confronting and through dialogue presenting the types of criticisms than staying at home and saying slogans from thousands of miles away. >> here's a questio
years in prison. the politics of hate crime laws divide rather than unite. in 1986 -- the 1980's, when the term hate crime was invented, the proponents said they meant for the laws to crime murderous -- punish plots by neo-nazis and similar his crew spent on terrorizing and destroying whole communities. the reality is that bias crimes are far more likely to be prosecutions directed against the archie bunker's of the world rather than the white supremacists of the world. indeed, most hate crime prosecutions involve young defendants, frequently mixed up teen-agers who commit low-level offenses such as criminal mischief and simple assault, typically escalating from spontaneous altercations at a party, in a parking lot, or at a school event. many cases that are initially called hate crimes, upon closer inspection, involve serious mental illness rather than some firm ideological commitment or organizational campaign against a particular group. it is worth pondering that the federal hate crime a statute passed in 2009 to bring a federal law enforcement resources to bear on hard-core murderou

, washington, d.c.. >> colbert king -- in your august 18 column with the headline "who else will fall in d.c.'s corruption tail? isstarted this way -- this no tale of fiction. what is the whodunit? >> it covers a wide spectrum. we start out with a guy named sulaimon brown who was a gadfly in the 2010 mayoral campaign. he was a candidate, a less well-noncandidate. i moderated one of the debates. i noticed that brown was constantly going after mayor fenty. zinging him with comments, crazy comments. the audience was lapping it up. the other candidate -- vincent gray, was sitting with a look on his face. through the democratic campaign -- after the campaign, when gray defeeated fenty, it turns out,sulaimon brown was given a job in the new gray administration, but was fired for a number of reasons. brown and then complained and said that he had been given money to stay in the campaign, the primary campaign, to harass adrian fenty and was paid by the great campaign to be there. that set off an investigation. since that time, this has spread like a cancer. now, the question is, who are the other peopl
of america's national security organizations since the 1940's, at the beginning of the cold war. it's not coincidental since after 9/11 we understood we were facing a very different threat to our national security and with an intensity that we hadn't experienced through most of american history, a very real threat to our homeland security. as i look back, i really want to again thank you, your predecessors in each of these roles, f.b.i., bob mueller, has pretty much been there the whole time, and the thousands of federal employees who work under you, because i think without question, because of all that the three organizations represented here before us have done, the american people have been much safer here at home than we otherwise would have been. we the american people, would have been if you had not existed. with a lot of gratitude, i thank you for that remarkable transformation. we made a lot of progress. we have kept the enemy away for most of the last 11 years. the most significant -- put it a different way, the most lethal threats or attacks on our homeland have been carri

right to do this. the u.s. position is that iran is secretly seeking to develop nuclear weapons and, under the guidance of the npc, and under the guise of the technology that is the same technology used to make a power reactor, under the guise of that, they're pushing ahead toward a weapon. up until october, 2003, the united states was pushing very hard to get iran referred to the u.s. security council for not being forthcoming. remember that there was the war in iraq. there was a strong push on the part of the europeans, especially britain, germany, and france not to go to the security council because they saw iran going the way of iraq. going to the security council would be a mandate for war. countries like france had been at odds with the united states over iraq and did not want to be at odds with the u.s. over iran, but wanted to stop the united states from doing what it did to iraq. we had a dramatic event where the foreign ministers of germany, in october, 2003, struck an agreement where iran would embark on uranium enrichment. it is the ultimate in dual use technology. it ha
development in the u.s. was the decision by the sec to back off on money-market funds. do you see that -- we had some regulatory actions on banks, chartered banks, each less. money markets are part of the shadow banking system and the sec says we can't do it. what happens next? >> this is a very important issue to address. they have made the case already that money market funds are a systemic issue. i think there has been a lot of work around that and consensus around that. some of it than by people in the audience here. i think the fact that that sec has been able to address this -- one of the things it was put into place to do was addressed these situations where you have a stomach tissue that is not being addressed by the primary regulator. now this is very much on the agenda. i think it has to be. there is obviously a complicated set of questions about how you do it. one option is to put it back to the sec by making a designation as a whole. the first response would be to put the onus on the sec to address this issue again, which may be the right way to go. you could also designate money

[laughter] hopefully we'll be successful. one of the aspects that worked well for obama four years ago is he promised to bring us more honest government. i've been around politics. [inaudible] the government in washington right now is permeated by cronyism, outright corruption and regulatory agencies, protecting the people they are supposed to be regulating. doesn't matter if you're in the tea party or occupy wall street, people see the government is working for the powerful interests and people who are well connected politically and not connected to the regular person. we have this great opportunity. [inaudible] one way to compromise is when government is no longer seen as this -- where our tax dollars are not being put to work for us but for t
. and that which is the greatest tool, according to the d.n.i. currently and previous d.n.i.'s. that tool which got strong bipartisan support was, indeed, an important thing for us to do here. we had three free trade agreements that we finally approved. they have been waiting around for a number of years. the consensus is they create jobs in this economy and give us a fair playing field in which our workers can compete. we had a transportation bill that we passed. we dealt with student loans, the interests paid on student loans and i would say for two years in a row, we have, in fact, spent less on discretionary spending than we did the preceding year. that's the first time we have done that in a generation. there are other things i could talk about. it is a shame that the other body has not acted on nearly the 30 bills that we sent over there that deal with jobs. and my bill, h.r. 4, which repealed that section of the president's health care bill that placed a paperwork burden on small business and that was the number one priority of the small business community in the country. i wish we would do
